Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 2 September 2016

Lizzie baffles her new homeroom teacher by pointing out that she's older than the first graders and is thus relatively a big kid.

(Strip Number 4855, Original Publication Date, 4 September 1987)

Panel 1: As the school day begins, Mrs Kinney tells her second graders to form up in a line.

Panel 2: Lizzie reminds a smaller child that she's in first grade.

Panel 3: She points said child to the proper line.

Panel 4: Mrs Kinney is bemused by the fact that Lizzie apologizes for breaking ranks by stating that she was helping one of the little kids.

Summary: It's funny on one level: the level that has people over twenty not being able to distinguish between seven years old and six years old.
